Village Green

Posted by Webmaster under Village Green

A concerned local has started the process of getting ‘Village Green’ status for the Humpty Dumps by obtaining the necessary application forms from the Open Spaces Society.

The granting of Village Green status is a complex legal matter. Our first step must be to gather proof and then present our case for legal opinion by the Open Spaces Society (OSS) then submitted to Gloucestershire County Council.

In order to register the land as a Village Green, we need as many positive comments by users as possible. Don’t worry if you haven’t used the fields for 20 years, please still fill in a form. If you know someone who used to use the fields, perhaps when their children were younger, please ask them to fill one in too.

Completed Evidence forms should then be returned to:
The secretary, 21 Berry Hill Crescent, Cirencester, GL7 2HF

Please also help to spread the word by displaying a poster which can be downloaded here.

Collected evidence will be returned with a Form 44 Application for Registration to: Gloucestershire County Council, Commons Registration Authority, Legal Services,
Quayside House, Gloucester, GL1 2TZ. Evidence forms will be public documents.

Hopefully this will be the start of a well supported campaign!

Further forms can be downloaded here or collected from 8 Abbey Way, Cirencester GL7 2DT

Help completing the form can be found here.
